Enjoy two of the all-time great Z-grade horror gems, hosted by the one and only Elvira!
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD ushered in a new wave of zombie movies. Directed by George A. Romero, the story concerns a group of ragtag survivors from an apocalyptic zombie invasion. Poor Barbra (Judith O'Dea) is driven to madness as she watches her brother being mauled to death. Judith O'Dea's kooky performance is one of the main fan highlights; the overall standard of acting is quite average (ie: it's very hard to tell the difference between zombies and the regular people). This merely adds to the feeling of the film. Top trash!
HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, starring Vincent Price, is the more stylish movie of the two featured on this disc. Price is a hoot playing the deranged millionaire who challenges a group of nitwits to last the night in a haunted house. Prime turns from classic scream queens Carolyn Craig and Carol Ohmart, plus some memorable special effects from William Castle make this a must-see. Plastic skeletons, old hags on conveyor belts, fun times...
Elvira is an absolute scream as she hosts these films, occasionally popping up during the films to cast a wry comment on the action (and no doubt to wake up those to have started to nod off). Viewers also have the option to watch the films without the Elvira bits. These films are always good value, and with the legendary Elvira, they are better than ever!
(Single-sided, dual layer disc)
